Help finding info on Luftwaffe parachute flares

Hi everyone,

I need a little help finding info on Luftwaffe parachute flares, particularly the ones used by the pathfinders to illuminate targets during night time raids. If anyone can tell me what the Luftwaffe technical name was for them and where I might find specs on them as well, I sure would appreciate it.

Regards
oquaig
